Volunteer

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

― Howard Thurman

Event Volunteers
Event volunteers support our program events. From digging in the dirt, posting flyers, welcoming attendees, serving up delicious food, and everything in between, we can always use help. Tasks will vary depending on the type of event. As an added bonus, you get to be a part of a great event!

Professional/Administrative Support
Sustainable Solano is mainly volunteer-run, so we appreciate administrative support. We have various small projects like flyer design and posting, and larger projects such as IT help or accounting if you are looking to dedicate some time and energy.

Communications Committee
Looking to be more creative? Are you a writer, blogger, photographer, graphic designer, or someone interested in volunteering for Sustainable Solano? We are looking to expand our volunteer Communications Committee/ Outreach Team and would love to hear from you.

Sign up for our mailing list.
